Trivia

Director Joe D'Amato claimed in an interview that the underwater scenes were shot at various places: at Ventotene, in a Roman swimming-pool and in a New Orleans aquarium. He also said that Raffaele Donato had the idea of directing this movie himself, and so d'Amato went along with it; but after a few scenes Donato "didn't feel up to directing the film through to the end, and since I was on the set anyway as producer and director of photography, he agreed that I should take over."

Deep Blood (1989)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Joe D'Amato's next to last horror film is yet another Italian rip off of Jaws. After a group of friends take a blood pack, their friendship is put to the test when one of them is eaten by a shark. This is without question the worst of the Italian rips I've seen but I do have two more coming to me. The film has one suspenseful moment, the first attack, but after that everything is pretty dull. There's not a fake shark used throughout the film. Instead we get stock footage of a real shark that naturally never matches up to watch we're seeing in the other footage. Since no fake shark is being used, all of the attacks are rather silly.
